History and synopsis

The show has aired on Sundays since 1993, currently airing from 11am to 1pm. Each episode covers rugby league-related content including previews of the weekend's fixtures and interviews with players. In New South Wales and in Queensland, it airs on Channel Nine, whilst in all other AFL dominated states it is shown on delay on GEM. This would lead into Nine's broadcast of Sunday afternoon football. The telecast into South Australia was controversially cancelled in early 2014 but returned late in 2015. Before 2013, The Sunday Footy Show was not broadcast into the AFL dominated states at all.

The show was formerly hosted by Peter Sterling from 1993 - 2015, Yvonne Sampson 2016 and James Bracey in 2017.

The Sunday Roast

In 2012, The Sunday Footy Show incorporated the show's former sister series, The Sunday Roast, which aired in its own right from 2005 to 2011, as a segment as part of the show.
